Steven P. Loheide is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison where he is the Director of the Hydroecology Lab. His research is focused on interactions between ecological and hydrological processes in natural and built systems, and the competition for water among municipal and industrial users, agriculture, and natural ecosystems. He and his research group develop methods to quantify and understand the processes controlling the exchange of water between groundwater, vadose water, vegetation, streams and the atmosphere using a combination of field data, remote sensing, and numerical modeling.
Dr. Loheide is a member of the board of Directors of the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Sciences (CUAHSI). He is co-founder and a major contributor to CUAHSI Virtual University, an inter-institution community of graduate students and educators in the hydrologic sciences that was developed to increase access to specialized hydrology courses for graduate students.
